3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours copperish orange with thick lacey head that lingers considerably. Aroma is bright citrusy hop flavors and biscuit malts. Taste is sharp hops with strong notes of pine, citrus, and grass. Hops taste fresh even though this is an older bottle. Solid malt body with sweet biscuity flavor. Finishes bitter. At 7.5%, clearly not a DIPA, but a very nice rich standard IPA.

Bready, yeasty aroma, but subtle. Bitterness I would not describe as citrus. Bitterness had a long finish. Says "Pale Ale" but more of an IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours a clear dark gold to copper body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring, some light lacing. The aroma is more driven by the sweet crystal malt than by the hops, just some minimal citrusy notes. Not a great start to this one. The flavor is overly sweet as well with a little too much crystal malt. What hops are there, are pretty covered by the residual sweetness. Medium bodied with a little clingy sweetness and fizzy carbonation. Definitely a letdown for a west coast hoppy beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours a rich golden amber color. Very little head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops up front, with significant maltiness. Flavor is bitter and roasty up front but with a sweet backbone. Overall a decent imperial IPA.
